PostSubject: Interference of French. Mistakes to consider.   Mon Mar 23, 2009 10:09 pm

Salam!

Some of the most important mistakes made in English are those due to the interference of French or Arabic. The interference of French is not a problem of pupils only but teachers as well.

If you take Book Four, File Four, you’ll find:

The season that I like the most is …

Correct:

The season that I like most is ….

Other mistakes many of us still make are:

Incorrect

All what I want to say is……

Correct:

All that I want to say is….

Incorrect

His parents don’t want. (Ses parents ne veulent pas.)

Correct:

1-For a usual refusal:

His parents don’t let him

2- For a specific moment in the future:

His parents won’t let him

or:

His parents don’t want him to….

Incorrect:

The green is my best colour.

Correct:

Green is my best colour.

Incorrect:

We should inform the responsibles.

Correct:

We should inform officials.

*A typical mistake still made by some teachers:

Incorrect:

A: Thank you.

B: Never mind.

Correct:

A: Thank you.

B: Not at all. / Forget it. / Don’t mention it. / You’re welcome…etc.

And another important problem is the misuse of ‘for’ and ‘to’ in many contexts. I’m personally suffering from this problem.

I would like colleagues to add any useful remarks about any mistake they may have noticed or will notice, however small they may seem.

Thanks for your attention.

Salam!

PostSubject: Valuable Remarks.   Wed Mar 25, 2009 9:20 am

Salam Alaikoum,

This issue is one of the most troubling for teachers and learners. I think it is impossible to get rid of it, but your intelligent remarks may urge the teachers to decide to enumerate and list all these weaknesses so as to bring the right remedy in the right time.

Thanks a lot.

Salam
